If you regularly check the Original Fake site, you might have seen that they updated their website with a new character (shown on the right). For those who live out of Japan, you might ponder what character this might be? It turns that that this character looks like a play on the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Mascot, “Pipo Kun”. Will there be a new figure or some tees based off this design? Keep checking Original Fake to find out.

We’re not sure if this is a custom by Futura or a collaboration between Casio and Futura but we know for sure that Futura has something to do with this G-Shock watch. The watch features a splatter pattern and comes in a grey color. Our guess is that it’s a one of one but then again we’ll have to wait to see if anymore news surfaces about this watch.

Event Horizon: Retro Journey of the Spraycan Wizard Exhibit was held on December 23rd at the Silly Thing store in Hong Kong. Futura himself was at the store and did a live installation using the front wall of the Silly Thing store as the canvas. Seeing Futura paint in action was a pleasure for the crowd that gathered there that day. And now thanks to Iori, we have some photos of Futura in action.
